Nottingham Rugby Boosts Attendance With Inflatable Fans
Total Pro Sports – When times are tough and stadiums are empty, teams should follow in the footsteps of the Nottingham Rugby Club.
This past Sunday the Nottingham Rugby team filled their stands with 1000 inflatable dolls provided by Airheads a local company that specializes in enhancing crowd scenes for films, TV, commercials and promotional work.
“Nottingham Rugby managed to get 1,000 extra “supporters” on Sunday when they took on title-chasing Exeter Chiefs at Meadow Lane.
The inflatables added to a crowd of 1,305 at Notts County’s stadium, who watched Nottingham go down 15-14 to the Chiefs.”
The Inflatable fans are being used at Nottingham’s games to encourage support of their local teams and the entire sport of rugby.
“Hopefully it will add to the atmosphere, and inspire people to come back again next week and help the team qualify for the Cup Final by beating Leeds.”
Hats off to Nottingham’s great idea and best of luck in their quest to the Twickenham Final.
